    Red face how to allow DAAP in firestarter?

    Firestarter has something weird going on lol

    I allowed ports 3689 and 5353 for incoming and outgoing traffic in firestarter but my other machines wont detect a DAAP share. They do see them when I turn off firestarter. I'm even more confused when I see that I have a local connection using port 56690 when I turn off firestarter and monitor the log. It seems that DAAP is using 56690 but when I allow it for incoming/outgoing it still doesnt pick up my DAAP shares.

    Is there a way I could fix this? I mean, I could run without a firewall but...idk if thats such a good idea :/

    I found this solution from a blog beacuse. Is a fix in the iptables. It cannot be done from the firestarter GUI, this because firestarter doesn’t suppport opening mDNS. You have to edit:
    /etc/firestarter/user-pre

    then add the following lines

    $IPT -A INPUT -p udp –dport 5353 -d 224.0.0.251 -j ACCEPT
    $IPT -A OUTPUT -p udp –dport 5353 -d 224.0.0.251 -j ACCEPT
